Located west of Racine inside the Highway 20 Petro Travel Plaza, our Danish Pastry store on South Sylvania Avenue is the perfect pit stop to discover a taste of our Denmark origins and history through decadent pastries and bakeries. Our delightful Kringle became available after Racine developed into “the most Danish City in America” due to immigration. This influx included the arrival of Anton Olesen from Denmark, in 1921, who was searching for a better life for his family. Anton’s son, Christian, quickly took work in a bakery and began to learn the trade of making delicious pastries from scratch.
Following more than two decades mastering the technique and methods of working in a bakery, Christian finally ventured out in 1949 and, with a business partner, started O&H Danish Bakery. Now in its fourth generation of owners, our famous pastry has led to the expansion of our bakery with multiple stores so you can easily find your nearest Kringle and scratch made Danish treats.
Danish pastries and Kringle as we know today, were created by a moment of serendipity due to a strike of the Danish Bakers Association in the mid-1800s in Denmark. During this time, Austrian bakers were hired to work in Denmark and brought with them their knowledge of dough folding and layering of shortening. The Danish bakers after returning, added their ideas and ingredients and, centuries later, we are still enjoying the result of this collaboration from the first tender bite of our Kringle to the last delicious mouthful. Over the years, customers in Racine requested new flavors and bakeries in Racine were happy to oblige with new creations. This led to local bakeries keeping the same methods of layering but moving away from the original pretzel design to an oval shape, which in turn saw the popularity of Kringle pastry skyrocket, and customers still travel from all around so they can get a taste.
In 1963, when Christian’s son, Ray, took over the family trade, he turned this traditional Danish bakery into a thriving bakery. Without deviating from the hard work and time-honored techniques, Ray catered to his customers’ wishes by adding more fillings to our pastries and serving each customer like family.
Sticking to the trusted technique of Old Denmark and our grandfather, our bakers today continue to exercise patience when it comes to our Kringle pastry. We roll our pastry over three consecutive days, layering with butter and resting overnight to produce a rich, buttery, tender, flaky and succulent pastry when baked. We then go on to search for the best ingredients from around the world to create homemade fillings and unforgettable flavored Kringles.
Our state of Wisconsin is home to the famous Door County montmorency cherries, fresh from the bog cranberries and silky smooth cream cheese. These delicious fruits and local specialties are the star ingredients in our Kringle including our Cherry Kringle, Red, White and Blue Kringle and other seasonal Kringles. Alternatively, our fondness for traveling around the world, has led us to scouring the globe for fabulous ingredients like Indonesian cinnamon, Madagascar vanilla bean and Swedish Chocolate flavors for the best that nature can provide.
We love to share our passion of Kringles and Danish pastries with our fans and, of course, help our new customers to appreciate our Viking heritage with divine baked goods.
